Glenn Beck’s final show and Casey Anthony trial capture high rating numbers

Glenn Beck averaged 2.175 million viewers (542,000 adults 25-54) in his final episode. While up from recent history, far off his highs when he cleared 3 million viewers. Still, Beck was second on Fox News to only The O’Reilly Factor for the night (2.54 million viewers, 559,000 A25-54).

The Casey Anthony trial continues to be a boon for HLN as it again topped adults 25-54 for both total day and primetime. Nancy Grace led the cable news nets in primetime with 677,000 adults 25-54.

CABLE NUMBERS FOR 11.03.09 ELECTION NITE

NIELSEN CABLE NUMBERS FOR LAST NIGHT, 11.03.09 (8-11 p.m.)

FOXNEWS: 4,043,000 viewers (1,130,000 in A25-54)

MSNBC: 974,000 viewers(308,000 in A25-54)

HEADLINE NEWS: 842,000 viewers(341,000 in A25-54)

CNN: 826,000 viewers (227,000 in A25-54)...

These numbers are not surprising – if you wanted to see any coverage at all to speak of, you had to watch FOX.  Corzine was giving his concession speech – CNN was not covering it – MSNBC was not covering it either.  Then when Christie came out to give his acceptance speech, again, only on FOX.  The other two were just going on and on with their little opinions about everything.  That is really not coverage.

But the difference between FOX at 4,000,000 to its nearest competitor, MSNBC, at 974,000 is just stunning.  The public is speaking at the polls and it is also speaking with the tv dial.  And, that, in spite of the fact the White House has declared FOX is not a real news channel.

Okay.  Fine.  And I just read that Pelosi says the dems won last night and they are going headlong ahead on healthcare.   They are not listening.

Drudge had an ad up a little earlier placed by a private citizen to call the Capitol tomorrow to protest the healthcare bill – (202) 224-3121.  That is if you can’t be there on the Capitol steps at noon in person.

But then, it doesn’t matter much what they say.  Nobody is watching.

He did get the angry part right.  I wonder if the poor, dumb folks will be able to find their way to the voting booth in 2010.  Yeah, I’d put money on it.
